ABOUT THE SERIES: Highly creative story problems spark curiosity and help students appreciate math as a powerful tool for solving real-life questions. Each book in the series is divided into 3 sections: Review Sheets—These lessons present important mathematical concepts and teach students computational skills. Step-by-step directions and easy-to-understand definitions clearly explain each concept and procedure. This section will also serve as a useful reference for the lessons in the last 2 sections. Skill-Builder Sheets—Creative story problems use mystery and humor to hold students’ interest. Each lesson deals with a particular skill, and students are aware of the skill being practiced. Extra-Practice Sheets—These pages add an additional challenge for students who understand the concepts and have mastered the computational skills. Problems are similar to those in the second section; however, students are not told which skills are involved. Grades 5–8.
